From the press release:

    The revolutionary uDraw GameTablet® that has allowed nearly 2 million WiiTM owners to unleash their inner artist, is scheduled to be available to Xbox 360® and Playstation®3 owners for the first time on November 18th, making the uDraw GameTablet the perfect gift this Christmas.

    The only gaming experience to combine art and gaming with technology and creativity, the uDrawGameTabletoffers endlessly imaginative and immersive hands-on gameplay. The entire family can enjoy a social game night and budding artists can create anything in their mind’s eye. From the skilled artist to the casual doodler – uDrawGameTabletoffers limitless versatility and infinite ways to play.

    Fantastic new games and improved functionality all presented in an exciting new HD design will ensure that the uDraw GameTabletis the ideal present for all the family this festive period.

    For its worldwide November debut on the Xbox 360 and PS®3, uDraw™ will adopt an entirely new look: a sleek, contemporary design that also incorporates console controls directly into the uDraw GameTablet. The new HD tablet not only looks incredible, it also has a host of new features crammed in to the sleek design. New features include:

    · High-definition art creation and gameplay
    · A stylus with greater sensitivity for more detailed results
    · Tilt and motion features
    · Direct touch-screen control that incorporates pinch-and-stretch features

    “As soon as we introduced uDraw last year, Xbox 360 and PS3 fans began asking when they could experience it, too – and beginning this Fall, they can,” said Brian Farrell, THQ’s President and CEO. “The uDraw offers amazing innovation and opens new doors of artistic possibility. There’s no console-based artistic tool like it.”

    The new tablet will also be supported by a host of exciting new games which include a new version of uDraw Studio™ software – called uDraw Studio: Instant Artist™– This software will bring the core functions of the uDraw GameTablet to life on your television. Bundled with the new uDraws, this enhanced artistic software package not only provides you every artistic tool imaginable but offers guided tutorials to teach many of the basics of art and design, as well as a more intuitive interface that keeps art tools right on screen at all times. Using the new uDraw Studio: Instant Artist on uDraw for Xbox 360 and PS3, artists will be able to more easily send and share images online.

    To coincide with the release of the uDraw HD tablet will be an updated version one of uDraw’s most popular games, Pictionary. Pictionary: Ultimate Edition is a new, high-tech version of the classic game of quick sketches and crazy guesses, which will feature new clues – and new functionality – exclusively created for the uDraw on Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms.

    Available on uDraw for Wii, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation’s The Penguins of Madagascar™ will start up an all new, super-secret operation that brings their inimitable brand of humor to the uDraw GameTablet. Players will lead “Team Penguin” on a zany adventure through the zoo and beyond in a brand-new story that brings them face to face with a nemesis who’s making a surprise return.

    The new titles are scheduled to join SpongeBob SquigglePants, Kung Fu Panda 2, Dood’s Big Adventure™ and the original Pictionary in an ever-growing lineup that spotlights the virtually unlimited creative and play power of the uDraw GameTablet. THQ plans to introduce additional titles for uDraw throughout 2011 and 2012.

    The uDraw GameTablet for Xbox 360 and PS3 is scheduled to be available in time for the holiday season, joining the uDraw for Wii – which is now available worldwide – as the ultimate creative device for video game consoles.
